Paddle Boat the West Lake like a … swan?

The West Lake, around 5 kilometers from Hanoi's Old Quarter, is substantially larger than Hoan Kiem Lake. However, it is less crowded than Hoan Kiem Lake, which is likely due to its distance from the Hanoi Old Quarter. One of the most interesting aspects of West Lake is that you can really get out on it... in a swan-shaped paddle boat. You can combine this with a visit to the beautiful Tran Quoc Pagoda.

NoteAlthough this was one of interesting activities in the West Lake, it was forbidden sine 2016 by local government because of some safety reasons. Hopefully, it will be reopened in near future, then tourists will have an interesting activity when visiting Hanoi.
